So, you've had a bad day? Well, guess what, so have I! Everyone has had bad days before. And guess what, that is completely normal. I am a teenager, still in high school, and I have had terrible days. Either if it is because I got a bad mark on a test or if my friends ditched me. But even when I felt like I had to end this short life, I still thanked god that I am blessed with beautiful brown hair, legs, ears, nose, and my lovely eyes. Everyone has seen terrible days. But be thankful for what you have and what you own. You never know, things could have been worse...
Everything will be fine!
Today's Advice : You want to be the best right? Well to be the best, you must be able to handle the worst. We were born to face all the problems with our brain. That's why we have a brain, you fools! I am not saying that you shouldn't cry if something terrible happened to you. I mean, I cry. I cry so much that I come to the point where I am like, "What am I doing? Why am I here crying like a fool?" Then, I get up, and I... grab a tissue. And wipe my face up. Remember this, "Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try." Everyone fails, EVERYONE. And guess what? Everyone succeeds at the end! Okay, yeah I get it, everyone will face challenges, and many awful problems on your path to success, but you have to learn how to jump over them and say good-bye to them. Because there is a long ride to success, and sobbing, crying, and thinking about your problems won't make you feel any better. It will also make your ride to success even longer. If you stumble, make it part of your dance! Don't get it? Let me explain; If something is stopping you from reaching success, just go along with it. Use your brain and your heart to make decisions. Everyone knows what is wrong, and what is right. When you've made a mistake, and I mean MISTAKE, not something on purpose, it is completely fine! Everyone learns from their mistakes, everyone!
Stars can't shine without darkness, always remember this statement. It means the darkness is your mistake, and you are the star, and when you make a mistake, you will rise up and shine, and you will learn to never do that mistake ever again, and you will learn how to learn from your mistakes.
By the end of this article, I promise you, you will be feeling much better about things around you. I know, I know, I am basically repeating the same things that everyone says, right? But some people cannot understand even after all that explaining. I want to help you. I really do, because if your child is about to go to high school, or if you know someone who is about to go to high school, that child is about to face some huge challenges, and I am not trying to scare yo., I am just warning you about the dangers of high school. It is not just bullying by other people, or if her boyfriend breaks up with her. It is the P word... PUBERTY! And a lot of girls will face a lot of problems during puberty, but always remember, after puberty, you will turn into a beautiful young woman. So don't worry!
How to have a good time even after all of that....
Okay, everyone wants a good time everywhere, and all of the time, right? Well I want you to do something for me: close your eyes after you are done reading the article... :-) And, repeat this, "I am beautiful. My smile is beautiful and my life is beautiful." Just repeat this every time you are having a crisis because there are people out there who don't have a home, who don't have clean water or food, who don't have a family, and who don't even have an education! And if you come to the point where you want to finish yourself because your stupid boyfriend broke up with you, then, yeah, you ain't going far in life. There is nobody out there that you would kill yourself for (except for you your family, if you love them). Other than your family, everyone else is just there to bring you sadness. Believe in yourself, and Never NEVER let you anger control you. Sometimes I get so angry that my anger starts to control me, and that is never a good thing, NEVER! This quote inspired me so much: "Be a pineapple: Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside!" This was the quote that I put on my 8th grade graduation speech a couple of years ago. And this quote inspired me so much, I can't even explain!
Just because you have had a bad day (24 hours) doesn't mean you have a bad life, people! A bad life would be for people who are unfortunate. And none of us are unfortunate, okay? NONE OF US! Yes, all of us have bad times, and some of us have had more bad times than others, but remember, everyone will reach success at one point. Even though this is a long ride, this ride will come to an end, okay?
"Never regret a day in your life. Good days give you happiness, and bad days give you EXPERIENCE!"
